After a recent cleanup patch, "gcc -Wmaybe-uninitialized" reports a new
warning about an existing bug:

drivers/media/usb/dvb-usb/dib0700_core.c: In function 
drivers/media/usb/dvb-usb/dib0700_core.c:763:2: error: ‘protocol’ may be used 
uninitialized in this function [-Werror=maybe-uninitialized]

It turns out that the "0 0 0 FF" sequence of input data has already
caused an uninitialized data use for the keycode variable, but that
was hidden with the 'uninitialized_var()' macro. Now, the protocol
is also uninitialized.

This changes the code to not report any key for this sequence, which
fixes both problems, and allows us to also remove the misleading
uninitialized_var() annotation.

It is possible that we should call rc_repeat() here, but I'm not
sure about that.

Fixes: 2ceeca0499d7 ("[media] rc: split nec protocol into its three variants")
Fixes: d3c501d1938c ("V4L/DVB: dib0700: Fix RC protocol logic to properly 
handle NEC/NECx and RC-5")
